The draft is underway …

Garrit Cole of UCLA has been selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates as the No. 1 pick in the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft. A story had leaked out earlier today indicating that Cole was their pick, but the Pirates still took their allotted 5 minutes of time before submitting their pick.

Seattle is now on the clock, followed by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Mariners are expected to go with third baseman Anthony Rendon of Rice, while the D-backs … well, we’ll shall see.
